University of Hawaii Cheerleading Letterwinner Leanna Lui was awarded with the 2015 Kane Fernandez Community Service Award on Saturday, January 30 during halftime of the UH Men’s Basketball game versus CSULB at the Stan Sheriff Center.
Lui lettered in cheerleading at UH from 1994 to 1999 and is the 15th recipient of the award.

She is a court officer for the State of Hawai‘i Family Court in Kapolei and an independent consultant with Rodan & Fields Skincare. Lui received her bachelor’s degree in family resources and a master’s degree in social work from UH Mānoa.
